Just as a heads up, @rjbprime , I've had decent luck posting on various forums on Reddit to promote the Irate Pirate.  I'm sure you could promote your specific game even more easily.  You might find more interested players that way.   ;D

I think part of the problem is that the active members of the Irate Pirate are at (or near to) their game saturation level and can't really join any further games.

You're also welcome to post about your game on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/IratePirateForums/).

Time reversed itself and my message got deleted so I'll restate it:

I know nothing about 4e, but this sounds interesting and I would like to join!

@Yurisei: Do you have a Windows PC (not a Surface tab) to run the Offline Character Builder? It can be installed on a Windows 10 PC, as long as you don't install it in either "Program Files" folders. As that is the easiest way to build a character, and the version linked in the campaign guide has the instructions on how to install it.

Anything available in the character builder after you have read the install guide and added the CBloader files, is fair game.

Other than that, the only specific requirements is reading of the campaign guide.

I've already done all that and made a character, actually! I just don't know several things: First, what "Versatile Expertise" is and how I add it, and second, what I should do about Ritual Spells (I'm a Wizard). I believe I get 3 Rituals free due to wizardness, but that would leave me with the majority of my 200 gold unspent which doesn't feel right.

Versatile Expertise is a feat. To add it as a DM awarded bonus feat, go into the feat tab, look at the bottom panel that shows you which ones you have selected, there should be a very small house icon.

That will give you a free feat selection. Make sure you have selected the blank feat in that panel. Then, just above that house icon, in the search bar, search for Versatile Expertise, and add it.

Then, go back to your Class tab, and it should show you have the selection to make. For wizard, I'd choose wizard implements, and maybe quarterstaff, depending if you have to choose each implement type individually.

For rituals, instead of clicking the buy button, there should be an add button. Click that one.

Any other questions, feel free to ask. If you know anyone else who'd play, send them an invite. I don't mind, just no evil nor chaotic evil characters. I've seen (and played in) too many games with evil characters, and they didn't end well for the group.

Other then that, send me both the PDF and the *.dnd4e file to here (http://tny.im/9f2). If you have an image, send that across as well.

I never thought I'd see someone run a 4e game again! Sorry about the delay, I've been...gone for a while. I should be back now for good, though! If you're still looking for players, I'd love to get a chance to play again.

@DireKitten: Do you have access to a Windows PC that can run x86 apps? And are you able to generate a character fairly quickly? The campaign guide has a link (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1KlsRGgENsk3VUxn9ogf2Z2E4vQUwqEvX) to the Offline Character Builder, with CBLoader and instructions on how to set it up.

@Yurisei, @BlazingFox, and @DireKitten: are you all still interested in playing? If so, I'll go ahead and ask for Otter to open up a sub-forum.

Post by: Yurisei on July 18, 2018, 06:30:30 AM
Sorry, I was under the impression this wasn't happening so I joined a few other games and I think I'm at the limit of how many I can keep up with.
Title: Re: [D&D4e] The World Below [1/5|3]
Post by: DireKitten on July 18, 2018, 06:33:38 AM
Yep, sure do! I think I might already have it installed on my laptop from messing around earlier this year, but I will double check after work today.

I should be able to have a character put together using the guidelines in the campaign guide.

@Yurisei: Fair enough, I was consulting a 3rd player, trying to get them to join before starting. Offers still there, you can join at a later date, if you wish.

@DireKitten and @BlazingFox: If this other player (that's not @Yurisei) decides not to join, you mind rolling up a second PC? The second PC can be mute, if you choose, but being that its PbP, it should be easy enough to tell them apart. I believe @BlazingFox has sent me two PCs, I'll have to check.
Title: Re: [D&D4e] The World Below [1/5|3]
Post by: DireKitten on July 18, 2018, 07:15:01 AM
Yeah, I can roll up to 2 characters. I don't think playing 2 would be exceptionally difficult...on a forum at least. Might not have them both ready tonight though. Too many wonderful choices to make. :P

Just let me know what roles @BlazingFox has rolled up and I'll make a couple of characters to complement.

Post by: rjbprime on July 18, 2018, 08:35:37 AM
@DireKitten: @BlazingFox has rolled up a Warforged Assault Swordmage (Defender), and a Pixie Full Moon Coven Witch (Controller).

We need a Leader and a Striker. If you can create one of each, that should be good. I have a Cavalier (Defender) NPC, as someone else to interact with.

Post by: DireKitten on July 18, 2018, 09:44:28 AM
Neat! I love Swordmages, and have absolutely no idea what Witches do, so this will be a fun game. Presumably Witches are the arcane power source?

A warlord sounds good for a Leader. I'll need to think about Striker. I don't think I ever got to play one...

Cool! What kind of character are you thinking about, @GeekyGamerZack ?

He has a Human Cavalier, and a Hengeyokai Elementalist. Just finished his CharGen.

@Otter: can you please create the sub-forum for this? With a folder already setup for old threads?

@GeekyGamerZack, @BlazingFox & @DireKitten: I'm ready to go, hope the rest of you are as well!
